Chemical Properties
It is transparently colorless oily liquid, slight odor of amine . It can be miscible with water, alcohols, ethers, esters, ketones, halogenated hydrocarbons, aromatics.
Production methods
It is produced by the reaction of γ-butyrolactone with methylamine. The first step is that methylamine reacts with γ-butyrolactone to produce 4-hydroxy-N-methylbutanamide, and then the second step is further dehydration to produce 1-Methyl-2-pyrrolidinone. Two-step reaction can be conducted in a tubular reactor continuously, and the molar ratio of γ-butyrolactone to methylamine is 1: 1.15, pressure is about 6MPa and temperature is 250 ℃. After completion of the reaction, and then by concentration and vacuum distillation, product is derived. Yield is 90%. If the production is conducted in tank reactor, Dosage of methylamine is 1.5 to 2.5 times of the theoretical amount. For laboratory preparation, for example, 2 mols of γ-butyrolactone and 4 moles of liquid methylamine were added In 500ml autoclave vessel, heat sealed and held at 280 ℃ for 4h. After cooling, the release of excess methylamine, distillation, collecting 201-202 ℃ fraction, the product was about 180g, the yield of which was approximately 90%. Raw material consumption (kg/g) forγ-butyrolactone and methylamine (40%) were 980 and 860.

It is a versatile industrial solvent. NMP is currently approved for use only in veterinary pharmaceuticals. The determination of the disposition and metabolism of NMP in the rat will contribute toward understanding the toxicology of this exogenous chemical which man may likely be exposed to in increasing amounts.
ChEBI: A member of the class of pyrrolidine-2-ones that is pyrrolidin-2-one in which the hydrogen attached to the nitrogen is replaced by a methyl group.
Professional standards
TWA 100 PPM (400 mg/cubic meter), STEL 100 mg/cubic meter
General Description
A clear colorless liquid with a "fishlike" odor. Denser than water. Flash point 199°F. Contact may irritate skin, eyes and mucous membranes. May be toxic by ingestion.
Air & Water Reactions
Soluble in water.
Reactivity Profile
This amine is a very mild chemical base. 1-Methyl-2-pyrrolidinone does tend to neutralize acids to form salts plus water. The amount of heat that is evolved per mole of amine in a neutralization is largely independent of the strength of the amine as a base. Amines may be incompatible with isocyanates, halogenated organics, peroxides, phenols (acidic), epoxides, anhydrides, and acid halides. Flammable gaseous hydrogen is generated by amines in combination with strong reducing agents, such as hydrides.
Health Hazard
Inhalation of hot vapors can irritate nose and throat. Ingestion causes irritation of mouth and stomach. Contact with eyes causes irritation. Repeated and prolonged skin contact produces a mild, transient irritation.
Fire Hazard
Special Hazards of Combustion Products: Toxic oxides of nitrogen may be formed in fire.
